" . . . Arts in Bushwick makes a beautiful map of all the participating studios and art spaces. You will be able to pick it up at various Bushwick locations, but mainly at one of the hubs, English Kills gallery, Northeast Kingdom restaurant, Outpost Artist Resources, AIRPLANE gallery, cafe Little Skips and Diana Jones Senior Center."

Diana Jones Senior Center (address, subway, BOS hours below) wrote the above information more than a month ago and YES, Diana Jones Senior Center (where I've been creating the Pioneers of Bushwick project) will act as one of numerous HUBS for the June 1st - June 3rd Bushwick Open Studios 2012. Yay!
